Alright, didnt want to hijack anyones thread so I figured I would start one up! I love photography (although my cam is not too great) and love sharing photos with people!


Feel free to share yours as well! Id like this to be a photo thread that everyone can share all those photos that have been hidden away on your digi or cpu without anyone to see them!!

Here are some from my collection...may be quite a few!! (avid nature enthusiast!)

(If anyone can tell me where this lighthouse is located...I might have to send you a bar of soap!!) ;)

Ian, very nice pictures. I looked to see what I had available to post but the only thing I could find on my pc were pictures I took documenting the progression of my nephew's giant tumor- .. I didn't think you all would appreciate that since even people in the medical community were grossed out by it. I'll look to see where I hid those pictures from Skyline drive in Virginia last summer....

To answer your question about the lighthouse. It's a very famous lighthouse and is located at montauk point on long island.

Very nice photos IanT.
Here are a few from my above average file.

My ol' buddy back at the Koi Pond. This beautiful leopard frog would change colors. In the original you can almost see me
in the reflection of his eye.


One of my wife's favorites.


Again from the Koi pond, Siberian Iris, I think.


From a tree way back in the woods;


Lastly one of my all time favorites. Grand Daddy Long Legs;


BTW IanT the lighthouse is in long Island NY

Gorgeous photos, and fun to see where members live!

I saw the first beaver exit the winter pond this week, and managed just one photo before it dove back under water.



This is our road, with my soap sign in front of the house:



Here's me, on our front walk:



or did you want just scenic, artsy pics? I do have a few of those from other seasons....but I cannot resist just a few more wintery ones, cuz that's what is upon me now: This 'ghostly ice arm' and hand and fingers is hanging from our downspout:



and can you spot the 'snow ghost' in center of this pic?



and this was taken from the front door at 5AM. I was trying for interesting snowflakes, and didn't even notice the tiny deer with eyes glowing in center of pic, until after I put the photos on the 'puter.

Oh Lordy.....hibiscus, is that what it is??? lol. I was outside of a hotel room and they had a potted tree with flowers...I took the pic and then just fell in love with it because it reminded me of Georgia O'Keefe's works when I blew it up.

Hey, what is the stone maze thingy?? It reminds me of a mandela - I have something similar on my back that I designed - it's like a Life mandela maze. Does that make sense?? :lol: Anyway, I am always drawn to circular things - the picture is very cool. k

Very nice photos GalleryGirl.

I like the lotus and the hibiscus. That bettle is a June bug (Cotinus nitida)
When we were small we would tie a string to ones leg and let it fly around like it was our pet.

I'm waiting for the colors of summer to return, It wont be long now.

really ?? thats a june bug! i thought they were black!? or at least all the ones ive seen were!...crazy!


the stone thing is a labyrinth that my family built by the house, really good for when you need to meditate, you light a bunch of candles and walk it slowly following the path, the pic is when it was unfinished, but I thought it looked cool like that because of the difference in color... it looks nice finished too!


yup thats a hibiscus!... they are awesome flowers and actually sleep at night!...they close up to conserve heat and energy!

pretty interesting!
